Head of English for Academic Purposes

Base Programme:
Pre-Sessional English Programme & Academic English Programme

My career started in English Literature and my PhD was an edition of 18th century letters. I've been working in English Language teaching since 1991 and joined ISLI in 2002. As a lecturer in EAP I am a member of BALEAP (a UK-based association of lecturers in English for Academic Purposes) and have been the Events Officer on the executive committee since 2013. I'm also a reviewer for the BALEAP Conference Proceedings and on the panel for the MA Award. I'm particularly interested in the teaching of reading, reading-into-writing and in assessment and have presented on these areas in the UK, the Czech Republic and Norway.
